If we had an opportunity to sign OT Jonathan Martin cheap, should we do that?

    There are plenty of instances in which people in abusive relationships refuse to blame their abusive partner.

    He seemed happy enough to blame Incognito to his agent and ESPN.. if you're okay with telling those people and making it national news.. you should be okay with telling your coach or someone in the FO.

    Full nuclear would have been shooting up the joint...Martin just left.

    I would not just take it. Depending upon which situation I was in, would determine how I would handle it.

    In public, I would take care of it personally and make sure it would never happen again.

    Professionally, I would take it to my superiors, management ect. And I would remove myself from the situation until it was taken care of to ensure I did not react in a way that would have an impact on my career.

    I am sure Martin would have loved to rip his throat out. But employers tend to not like when employees beat the shit out of each other.

    Perhaps because of the actions of the o-line coach he felt that was not an option. Hell they mocked the assistant trainer for being Asian and the head trainer did nothing....what would you think?

    Well.... once he told his agent, you knew it would not stay private. It is the agents job to protect their clients

    Annnd bingo. See, that's honestly the only point I've been trying to make. That is exactly how anyone should handle that situation. And that's my big problem with Martin.. he had ample opportunity to do so and didn't.

    I would think that the OL coach is a piece of shit (he should be kicked out of the NFL too, the guys worthless) and would go to someone above him. Just as Martin should have done.

    Well perhaps that's full nuclear, but I was just replying to Warlock and he used the term to describe Martins actions. Don't you think he should have said something to someone? At least once to see if it would work before walking out and going to the media with it?

    I will admit, I did not read word one of the report.

    But, who is to say that he did not go to his agent first to see what he should do, and his agent is the one who set everything in motion? His agent would be doing what is best for the player and his future, and do what he thought would be the best to protect his talent.
